A semi-regular round up of the things our fearless leaders can’t stop thinking about…

Sam’s Picks

01. INTO THE WOODS File burl wood (started with my kitchen cabinets) and wood carving (started with my pops) under my list of top obsessions of the last decade. The perfectly smooth, one-of-a-kind Golding vase has my heart in every way. Isn’t she lovely?

02. FASHION FAREWELL The news of Dries Van Noten’s retirement hit hard. It’s a brand that does no wrong for me. Sara Grace Wallerstedt has been a part of past campaign collaborations with long-time SWOON partner Forty Five Ten. We have watched her grow and are so proud of her and her mother agency, Dallas based, Wallflower Mgmt. It felt right to pay homage to the recent announcement of Van Noten’s departure with Wallerstedt’s appearance on his Fall 2023 RTW runway in this stunning brocade coat. Thank you for all the beauty Mr. Van Noten. Forever your fan.

03. THE LIGHT FANTASTIC I’m here for all the unusual shaped and oddly-scaled lamp shades of late. Big, small, imperfect, ribbed, ruffled, sassy, you name it, I’m into it. The Saint table lamp in tobacco alabaster happens to be a perfect marriage of light and sculpture and is one of my new favorites at Shop SWOON.

Jos’ Picks

04. SINK IN I tend to be a clean-lined white sofa girl, yet I can’t stop thinking about this chic sculptural beauty. The deep loden green velvet is rich and moody, and the low-slung profile, curvy corners, and column-like wood “legs” give it cool, artful vibe.

05. OBJECT OF DESIRE Elsa Peretti is my ultimate girl crush. I am obsessed with every single object and piece of jewelry the late designer conjured up. Her sinuous pieces feel at once elegant, low-key sexy, clever, and cool. This sterling silver and black silk tassel sake cup is the latest Peretti creation on my wish list... I’d put it on my nightstand to stash rings (so I could gaze at it every night before dozing off).

06. FREE FORM About a decade ago, a dear friend gifted me with a copy of Shozo Sato’s The Art of Arranging Flowers: A Complete Guide to Japanese Ikebana. Published in 1965, the massive tome ignited my love of the art form and its focus on simplicity, elegance, and spare asymmetry. Sam and I were inspired by the arrangements in the book when we created the Ikebana photo series for Shop SWOON. Shot by our amazing photography team PS. SWOON and framed in custom rounded wood frames, it was a really special collaboration. Clearly I’m biased, but I love the way the final works turned out.
